Mardum is the Burning Legion world the Illidari invade in their bid to capture the Sargerite Keystone, the key that will allow them to infiltrate other Legion worlds. The demon hunter forces are small, but they manage to power several demonic gateways to bring in notable allies to aid in the effort: the Ashtongue Deathsworn, Coilskar naga, and the shivarra. The fighting is intense, but the combined might of the Illidari manages to push through to the floating Fel Hammer to defeat Brood Queen Tyranna and snatch the keystone. Triumphant, they step through the portal to the Black Temple, ready to continue on the next part of their quest against the Legion at Illidan's side... of course, that's a story for another day.

For a complete look at all the quests within Mardum, please see this list. Within, the demon hunter starting experience in unveiled, complete with maps, coordinates, and rewards.

For a glimpse into what NPCs players interact with and what mobs they'll face, see this page. The Illidari force is small, so there's not much in the way of services. Demons flood the area, including quite a few types never before seen on Azeroth.
